    Daniela and Frank McClintock Owners| Nature guide

    The story of Frank is similar to that of many adventurers, that trace a path but who end up falling in love with a place off their route. In this case it was curiosity about Portugal, with the the Algarve as a destination, which brought this Englishman born in Africa to us, eventually finding his destiny in this small piece of the Alentejo. It’s been more than 20 years and he has wanted to leave. Today he shares his passion for his “paradise”, always supported by his wife, Daniela, with the study of birds, having become an ornithologist of reference throughout the country.
